Barthalemu Dias Influence On The Americas
This is a painting of what Lisbon’s harbor would have looked like during the Renaissance (which is very busy). Lisbon’s harbor became such an amazingly busy harbor that it was one of the most busy harbors in Europe. This was because of new spices that were brought back from the Americas. Spices were highly valued in the India-Europe Trade. Barthalemu Dias was one of the explorers setting sail from the Lisbon Harbor. He successfully traveled by sea around the Cape of Good Hope (Cape of Storms). Portugal played a significant role on the Americas because of Prince Henry’s discoveries and also because of Barthalemu Dias’ discoveries which led to all of the other discoveries and impacts on America by Spain, France, the Netherlands, and England.

    Columbus was a very important figure in this decision because he was one of the most known explorer from the renaissance. He made four voyages to unexplored land, traded and became friends with natives, then he colonized and killed most of the natives. Prince Henry the navigator was also a widely known explorer of the Renaissance. He mapped and made voyages to India around the Horn of Africa. In addition he did take two voyages. But why Christopher Columbus was better is that he took four voyages to an unexplored and unknown place. Portugal had better equipment and better knowledge going into exploration but they didn't use that to their advantage. They had many maps created and they had a variety of ships like larger ships for ocean water and smaller ships for smaller bodies of water to travel on. However, the spanish did have a large armada and they used that to their advantage in bringing back more men to colonize the native land. Additionally they had many more explorers to go and find these places to explore in more depth. The spanish had much more money going into their process of exploration and finding new land, trade routes and even gold. The spanish were better in exploration than the portuguese because they had more resources which include ships and money and they also took many more…

    1. Three arguments’ that Juan Gines de Sepulveda used to justify enslaving the Native Americans were for gold, ore deposits, and for God’s sake and man’s faith in him. 2. Three arguments that Bartolome de las Casas gave in attacking Spanish clonial policies in the New World were the Indians eating human flesh, worshiping false gods, and also, he believed that the Indians were cowardly and timid. 3. For comparisons that Sepulveda used, in lines 1-7, to express the inferiority of the Indians was their prudence, skill virtues, and humanity were inferior to the Spanish as children to adults, or even apes to men. Comparisons he used to dismiss the significance of the Indians “Ingenuity for various works of artisanship” were the animals, birds, and spiders that could make things humans could not replicate. In either situation, there was no appropriateness. 4. Las Casas may have weekened his case by requiring that the Spanish must restore what had been taken unjustly from the Indians because the Spanish ultimately modernized them and if they were given back what had been taken, they would again become ‘retro’. If the Indians had been given back their bow and arrows, then they would have no use for them because they have guns. 5. The bias that Las Casas expressed in the last paragraph in his book was that Muslims are savages.…

    Bartolome' De Las Casas stated that "those who have traveled to this part of the world pretending to be Christians have uprooted these pitiful peoples and wiped them from the face of the earth (Las Casas, 12). After reading the horrific accounts of what has occurred to those "unassuming, long suffering, unassertive and submissive" peoples of the Indies that "are with out without malice or guile, and are utterly faithful and obedient both to their own native lords and to the Spainards in whose service they now find themselves" (Las Casas, 10). As a god-fearing man of the priesthood, I utterly deplore the use of my Christian faith as a ruse of the Spaniards in the Indies to justify their agenda of greed and destruction.…

    The Mediterranean Sea had been the focus of European trade with other parts of the world for over 2000 years. In fact, until about the year 1500, the Atlantic Ocean had been a barrier, for Europeans. After 1492, this focus shifted to the Atlantic Ocean by routes south around the Cape of Good Hope, and by trans-Atlantic trade. European discoveries of new land meant an increase in commercial activity of the society from which the discoverer comes. Until then, most trading and manufacturing originated from Asia. The opening of the Atlantic introduced more sources and markets having a positive effect on European commerce. On a more specific level, the role of internal commerce in France, England, and the Spanish kingdoms exponentially. As Europeans recovered from the shock of the plague, the part of commerce and industry in the economy started to grow, particularly during the fifteenth century. This had…

    I am Bartholomew Dias and the conflict is that Bartholomew Dias went with Pedro Cabral and they landed in Brazil. Cabral was not interested in exploring the area he discovered, he was more interested in finding India not Brazil.
